Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful welcome to Canberra! This was a perfect family home to begin our new life here in Australia. My two children (5 and 8 years), my husband and I emigrated from the UK and stayed here for several weeks while we explored and settled into Canberra. The house was clean, modern and well equipped that made our stay so comfortable we were able to easily focus on setting ourselves up properly. There are some wonderful routes for biking and walking in the Watson area, including the national park around Mt Majura. We often made the 2 minute walk to the national park from the house as a family early evening time to watch the wild kangaroos come down off the mountain to graze. Our children particularly enjoyed their stay here as we were only a ten minute walk from a number of playgrounds sporting plenty of equipment to have fun on. We were without a car so we made heavy use of public transport, primarily buses. The stop for the number 39 service is just over a 5 minute walk away which takes you through Dickson and on into the city where its possible to get buses to anywhere in Canberra. The owners were in contact regularly to ensure we were happy and comfortable - which we were - great job guys! Both my husband and I agree we would most certainly recommend this gem of a property to anyone wanting to experience the beauty and convenience of The Bush Capital.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely place We enjoyed staying at this house. It was comfortable, warm, plenty of space, and very convenient (only a short drive to the centre of Canberra). Also the owners were very friendly and easy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easily accessible accommodation. We needed a place to stay for the week of Kanga Cup. This house met all our needs and allowed us all the comforts of home while we visited chilly, rainy Canberra. The beds were comfy; the kitchen allowed us to cook at home; the heating in the house was great and we could tune the TV to watch the Swans - what more could we ask for! It was great to come back from a chilly day visiting the soccer fields of Canberra to a warm house and spread out to relax in one of the 3 bedrooms or the living room. The location of the house is super easy to find and was close to a couple of the fields where my son played. The living room gets lovely morning sun (provided you have good weather!) and heats up the home nicely too. The owners were very welcoming and checked in with us to ensure we had everything we needed. I knew I could contact them if I needed them and that their response would be prompt. However, we had everything we needed. The house was very clean and tidy. The neighbourhood is quiet and felt safe. We took advantage of the trails at the end of the street and had a family jog past kangaroos and beautiful bushland, I highly recommend exploring the trails if you have time. We would stay here again and recommend it. Thanks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointed We made contact with the owners of the property before making this review. We couldn't have been happier with the communication during the booking in process. It is a modern home and spacious. We were disappointed with our stay. We feel the property was misrepresented. The property is listed as being in immaculate condition - there were dirty marks on the walls, the back splash in the kitchen and around the sink had cooking splatters & the stove top was dirty. There were plates, bowls and cutlery in the cupboards & draws with visible food on them. I had to wash them before they could be used. There was rubbish in the backyard and many used cigarette buts on the ground in plain sight near the backdoor - disgusting! The towels were quite old and very scratchy. The bedding looked lovely, but had a low cotton count, very sticky and uncomfortable. We have stayed in a huge amount of holiday accommodation, one with high costs as this house, we would expect better quality. Spacious backyard? No. The beeping from the NBN box kept us awake during the night. Then between text messages, where I was asked what sort of battery it requires, and you coming over to fix it, twice, it took up a few hours of our supposed relaxing time during our holiday. Disappointed there was no offer of a partial refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just beautiful! Beautiful house and love the setup of it. My family loved the homely environment. Close to everythin and short ride/drive to the city centre, which made traveling very convenient. Definitely returning to this beautiful and conveniently located house. Our stay was indeed memorable and relaxing.
